I driving about 70 in a 55 on a city highway in traffic with no cars ahead of me coming into a fairly large curve in the road. As I turn, I see a line of cars stopped at a red light. I had to hit the brakes pretty hard as I wasn't paying enough attention before hand. Naturally the Z stopped on a dime as usual without any incident or close call whatsoever. Unfortunately, a full sized van (with disgustingly inferior brakes) comes flying towards my car about 2 seconds later. I see the events about to unfold, so as soon as he was very close, I lunged the Z forward using the 7-8 feet I had between me and the car in front of me in order to soften or avoid the impact. It didn't work completely. The van skidded and nailed my car. I punched the passenger seat, fired off a few choice words and got out of the car. It seemed like about a 2 hour walk to the back of my car to assess the damage. I really got nailed, it jolted me forward about 4 feet or so. I figured the rear of the car was caved in and cracked. However, to my amazement, no damage!!!! I looked and looked but all I saw was some black scraped from the vans front licence plate frame and 2 tiny indentations. I couldn't beleive my eyes. I got all the information as humanly possible from the guilty party and headed home. I used some scratch-out on the violated areas and wiped off any and all remnants that the catastrophy took place. Apparently, as well as beng superior in loks and performance, the Z also boasts outstanding impact resistant bumpers.
